Nestle's Health Science division has developed a low-FODMAP drink designed for consumers with 'digestive sensitivities'. ProNourish comes in French vanilla and strawberry banana flavours. The 8oz bottles contain 170 calories and 6g of sugar.

"Often times, people with digestive sensitivities avoid all foods and food categories that give them discomfort, or even fear of discomfort, which can unintentionally impact their nutritional intake," said Barbara McCartney, regional business head for Nestlé Health Science Consumer Care in North America. "With our new ProNourish Low FODMAP nutritional drink, we are providing a trusted source of nutrition that can be enjoyed, knowing that it has been tested and certified to be low in FODMAPs by Monash University (Australia)."

FODMAP is an acronym for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols, which, according to Nestle, classifies specific types of short-chain carbohydrates that can be poorly absorbed in the small intestine, resulting in digestive problems.
